The POLICE have been patrolling a city center square following reports of anti-social behaviour.
Brighton and Hove Police officers have increased their presence in and around Norfolk Square to combat the problem.
Officials urged the public to continue reporting incidents.
“Further patrols took place in Norfolk Square in Brighton over the weekend due to reports of anti-social behavior in the area,” a police spokesman said.
“Remember that we rely on the public’s eyes and ears for reporting. So if you witness anti-social behavior, please report it to us online or via 101.
“And of course the 999 in an emergency.”
Police were already patrolling a Norfolk square earlier this month.
While on patrol, officers from the police community arrested two people for drinking in a PSPO (Public Spaces Protection Order) area set up in Norfolk Square.
“PSPOs are designed to combat anti-social behavior or activities in a specific location that negatively impact a community,” a police spokesman said.
“They set conditions and restrictions on people using a regulated area and give police and local authorities additional powers to deal with specific activities.
“Please report anti-social behavior or suspicious activity to us on 101 or online, but of course dial 999 in an emergency.”
Last month Brighton and Hove Police also carried out foot patrols by the sea in St Aubyns, Hove, to tackle bad behaviour.
Meanwhile, police were also stepping up foot patrols in and around Linden Park in Littlehampton and the rock gardens in Preston Park in Brighton.
